Tongue is a very common dish in Colombia; you can buy it clean and ready to cook, in large markets. It is typically cooked in a pressure cooker, like many of our dishes, and then seasoned with hogao. Either of the two hogaos in this book will go with it. As I was testing recipes in Bogotá, I cooked lengua for my children, but they heard what it was and were a bit shocked! But so many homes serve it regularly that children get used to it before knowing what it is.
